An interesting issue.  We almost had something similar happen internally 
because one of our carriers (soon to be ex-carrier) only sends and 
accepts ten digits on US calls, and country code without the + on 
international.  The way our routing and billing is set up we expect to 
use the country code on all calls.  They think we're strange to expect 
it that way.

Something to add to the list of questions for potential carriers.
